One of the key foundations of my business is transparency. Let’s face it – there’s a ton of advice on the web. And a lot of it is designed to bring you into something shady, whether that’s a $2 purchase that tries to suck you into a $1,000 investment in minutes or a product that will cause you more headaches than it’s worth.
In the spirit of transparency, I’m disclosing that some of the links on my website are affiliate links. That means I may earn a commission if you click through and make a purchase. This comes at no extra cost to you – in fact, we embed discounts in our links if our partner offers one.
Trust takes a lifetime to build and a second to break. I operate Jumpcoast with that in mind. I only recommend a product if I’m familiar with it and would recommend it to my friends and family. Building trust and helping you feel supported is more important to me than huge commission payments.
Doing Your Due Diligence on Recommendations
Even if I recommend a particular product on this site, you may want something different. You’ll need to consider your goals, skills, and objectives.
For example, I may recommend hiring a logo designer on Upwork, but you may want to see a bunch of options from a logo crowdsourcing site. So in general, I compare alternatives to help you make an informed decision.
There are no guarantees with any product. Every single major product on earth has negative reviews. I can’t guarantee your experience with a product will achieve the results you want. I’ll be able to give you my best recommendation – it’s up to you to decide and follow through. Please do your due diligence and make the choice that fits what you need.
Spotting Affiliate Links
Not every link on Jumpcoast is an affiliate link. Most of the time, our affiliate links will have “recommends” in the URL (like www.jumpcoast.com/recommends/systeme-io).
Even the “recommends” links are not all affiliate links. I include several non-affiliate links here, as it’s a lot easier to manage the site if a link changes or if the site opens up an affiliate program.
To spot affiliate links, you can hover over the link or copy + paste it into your browser.
If you don’t want to click on a link, try Googling what you’re looking for. As I’m sure you’ve experienced, Google’s algorithms are great at getting you to your destination.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me using my contact form – I’d love to hear from you. If anything on here is unclear or confusing, you’d be doing me a big favor, as it will help me address the confusion for everyone else too!
